In the blink of eye, we’ve gone from enjoying the first heat wave of summer to dreading the next one. It’s not just hot, we find ourselves saying, but all of the sudden it’s too hot. And we absolutely don’t blame you, but we’re here with some answers to recent questions that will hopefully assuage concerns that there’s just nothing to do about it. In Ask the Expert: Cooling Underwear, we’re providing you with some underwear options that will help bring the heat down.
Tyler from Syracuse, NY – Greetings, Underwear Expert! My name is Tyler and I live in central New York. I totally love the summer here, especially running on country roads and hanging out at my cabin, but it’s been way too hot for my typical underwear, and I’ve got the sweat to prove it! Are there any brands or styles of underwear you can recommend for me? I should mention that I prefer briefs.
The Underwear Expert – Tyler, thanks so much for writing. You’ve got a common question for this time of year, and so you’re in luck: We absolutely have some great suggestions for briefs that will keep you cool. These will wick away some serious sweat and help you continue to enjoy summers in Syracuse.
Obviously Spectra 2.0 – AnatoFREE Hipster Brief: The first step toward keeping you cool is that these briefs have an anatomical pouch that lets your package hang freely, providing superior comfort, fit, and coolness. Finally, and this is truly the Obviously difference, the quality fabrics used to make this garments are engineered to keep you from itching, scratching, and sweating, meaning you can stay an average of a couple of degrees cooler no matter what you get up to.
skull & bones Tiny Skull Pattern Brief in Grey – This new offering from skull & bones is another cooling option, beginning with its contour pouch and “no roll” logo waistband. The double fabric layer gusset means support, but it also means these briefs will wick away sweat and keep you cooler with a fabric that is made of Pima cotton, Modal, Spandex, and jersey.
